Moving away from Pain and Ego

By |June 25th, 2015|Ego, Emotional, Emotional Pain, Mastermind|

The universe is not complicated, it is us thinking that makes it so. Complication is necessary for procrastination. When the truth is simple and in front of you, the next steps (no matter how uncomfortable) become obvious and undeniable. For the Ego, it's better to complicate things, and distract itself than to cross a bridge [...]

The Dynamics of E.G.O

By |February 11th, 2015|Ego|

When you look at your body, your Ego's sense of self appears relatively stable and unchanging. For example, only changing as you change clothes, gain or lose weight, etc. But the reality is the Ego self expands or contracts a great deal even from moment to moment. Experiencing pleasure on inflation from things like praise, [...]

Recreate Yourself

By |September 19th, 2014|Confidence, Ego, Personal Development, Perspective, Spiritual Growth|

Perhaps one of the most liberating insights I ever had is that our self image is not set in stone. Like wet clay through childhood it might be greatly shaped by parents, friends and experiences.. but before it hardens in our teens or early 20s we have the power to greatly reshape it. And even [...]

How Can I Maintain Higher Awareness And Not Slide Back Into My Old Personality?

By |July 16th, 2014|Ego, Perspective, Spiritual Growth|

Question: "How can I maintain higher awareness? I find myself having moments of clarity and then I feel like I regress into my old personality, routines and thoughts that don't serve me." This is an important thing to realize.. Even after you have unique spiritual experiences or deep insights that totally shift your perspective and [...]

Ego Training

By |March 24th, 2012|Ego, Mind, Personal Development|

The natural tendencies of our Ego show up when we are not aware or willfully directing it. It's important therefore to develop and sustain awareness as much as possible throughout the day to cultivate positive tendencies that carry over even when we're not fully aware. The result is that our Ego will begin to act [...]

The Soul Captain vs. the Ego Captain

By |July 27th, 2009|Ego, Spiritual Growth|

Imagine a ship (the sensory body) sailing on the open ocean (reality). The ship is managed by a crew (organs and cells) and it also has two captains – the Ego and the Soul. The Ego Captain The Ego captain is very selfish, power hungry and prideful. He likes to steer the ship towards destinations [...]

Self Understanding is Self Clarification

By |August 31st, 2008|Ego, Personal Development|

The process of self understanding is really the process of self clarification. Why do I behave the way that I do? What do I truly value? What do I truly want? What are the highest value actions in life? These questions are worth deep investigation, for the answers not only tell us who we are [...]

The Ego and the Astronaut

By |May 7th, 2008|Ego, Mind|

Losing the Ego / personality does not mean that it's unimportant. It just means that a temporary loss is necessary for you to find it entirely. An Astronaut living inside a ship, looking out the windows all his life would never really know what his ship looked like until he 'lost' it - floated out [...]

Understanding the Role of Self

By |February 27th, 2008|Ego, Personal Development, Purpose|

The feelings we have about 'self' are based on usefulness. In other words, if you didn't CARE what others thought of you - you wouldn't function very well in society because you would be an outcast. So a strong sense of self is a necessary part of being an individual. It's a useful tool for [...]

You Are Not *Your Name*

By |February 26th, 2008|Ego, Perspective, Spiritual Growth|

 I had a friend write me recently and tell me they were doing so well in life, that things were going so well. But the more they explored themselves the more they began to lose their sense of purpose and feel like life is really just some facade. What I shared with her in response [...]
